OnePlus 5T, an ‘all-screen’ successor of the OnePlus 5, is set to launch at an event in New York City on November 16. The Chinese company has already confirmed the availability details of the upcoming OnePlus 5T smartphone. OnePlus, making sure that the Indian customers are not left out, has announced a flash sale on November 21. The teasers so far have confirmed that it will be the company’s first smartphone with an edge-to-edge display featuring an 18:9 aspect ratio. A flurry of leaks and official information related to next smartphone from OnePlus has already given us a glimpse of what to expect from the November 16 OnePlus 5T launch.
OnePlus 5T price in India
Starting off with the pricing, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has hinted that the OnePlus 5T price will be under CNY 4,000 (approximately Rs. 39,000). This may mean that the upcoming handset may not be priced too high compared to the 8GB RAM variant of the OnePlus 5, though duties and other levies may push the price beyond the Rs. 40,000-mark in India. In China, the 8GB RAM variant of OnePlus 5 is priced at CNY 3,499, while it costs $539 in the US and Rs. 37,999 in India.Read more ↓
The company has been heavily teasing the OnePlus 5T on social media and has confirmed few features. One of them is presence of the headphone jack. Lau also confirmed the name of the handset weeks ahead of the launch. Previously, OnePlus tweeted a teaser image pointing to the 3.5mm jack-equipped OnePlus 5T, seemingly confirming its presence. The availability of the audio jack would make it one of the few flagships that still offer the port, given the iPhone and Pixel 2 range have done away with it. Going by the company’s naming, OnePlus has given the alphabet “T” to distinguish the new upgrades to its existing flagships. The company last year unveiled the OnePlus 3T as the new version of the OnePlus 3.
OnePlus 5T specifications, design, features
Going by some teaser images and leaks, the OnePlus 5T will be the company’s first smartphone to sport a bezel-less display with 18:9 aspect ratio. The thin bezels will shift the capsule-shaped fingerprint scanner to the back of the device. The smartphone is likely to have a portrait mode to capture images with bokeh effect.
Some leaked images of the OnePlus 5T have also highlighted the absence of the home button at the front that has been a part of the OnePlus series since the OnePlus 2 launch in July 2015.
OnePlus co-founders Carl Pei and Pete Lau have been also teasing the camera on the new smartphone. The teasers have tipped a top-notch camera experience on the OnePlus 5T. The executives posted some camera samples that were supposed to have been captured from the new smartphone.
If rumours are to be believed then the OnePlus 5T will come with an upgraded dual-camera setup that would include optical image stabilisation (OIS) and a larger set of image sensors than what was featured on the OnePlus 5 earlier this year.
Prolific phone tipster Evan Blass had shared an image claiming to show the top front panel of the upcoming smartphone. Going by some media reports, the OnePlus 5T is also believed to be the flagship OnePlus 5’s mid-cycle upgrade.
OnePlus 5T was listed by a Chinese retailer weeks before any official announcement. The leaked retailer listing claimed some of the specifications, such as 6-inch Quad-HD screen with 18:9 aspect ratio and it is said to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC clocked at up to 2.45GHz. It is likely to come in 6GB and 8GB RAM options with 64GB and 128GB storage respectively. On the camera front, the handset is said to sport a 20-megapixel rear camera coupled with another 16-megapixel sensor, making it a dual camera setup at the back. It is also said to have a 16-megapixel front camera.
These specifications all match with OnePlus 5; however, differences include a larger 3450mAh battery and a larger 6-inch display, while with some reports claiming a full-HD+ resolution of 1080×2160 pixels. It is also thicker than the OnePlus 5, weighing in at 164 grams. The thickness is said to be identical at 7.25mm, but the phone will be slightly wider and taller at 157×75.4mm. The handset is rumoured to support global 4G LTE bands and support 34 network bands.
OnePlus 5T also made an appearance at the AnTuTu benchmark suggesting the OnePlus A5010 model name, and listing similar specifications apart from a 20-megapixel front camera, and a boost of the rear camera. The presence of Android 8.0 Oreo on the OnePlus 5T is expected to make the overall package an attractive piece of hardware.
The Chinese company is heavily stressing on the fact that the community was involved in a large way when it comes to the OnePlus 5T development. We can believe that the company took the feedback from customers and has worked to improve some features. The company few weeks back faced some solid backlash when it was accused of collecting unanonymised analytics data from its users. The company, however, took no time to introduce a new “opt-in” option for the user experience program.
